Clubs and Activities

CCSC believes that student participation in school-based student extracurricular activities is critical.  Extracurricular activity enhances the educational experience of students, strengthens college applications, and builds leadership skills. Selective colleges believe that participation in both school-based extracurricular activities and activities that are not affiliated with school are of great benefit to students. The school makes it easy for interested students (and faculty members!) to start new extracurricular activities that are aligned with their interests.
